LOGISTICAL SUPPLY

Vendor Managed Inventory

TR's logistical supply systems can practically eliminate administration processes and reduce the customer’s overall costs. Getting high-volume, low-cost components from the supplier to the production line involves administration.

This can add considerably to the total in-place cost of the parts. Each system TR installs is tailored to the customer’s individual needs and can range from a simple KanFax system to a full Direct Line Feed for very high volume users.

Vendor Managed Inventory benefits
  • Dramatically reduced vendor base and associated administration costs 
  • Inspection costs reduced as quality approved parts can be shipped direct to the production line 
  • Reduced cost of stockholding and storage as only a few day’s stock is held on the production line
  • This allows purchasing teams to spend their time working on higher value products
  • Production can then focus on its core function, and parts are always available at the point of use 
  • TCO - Total Cost of Ownership visible
